Pro-Lifers Eagerly Await GOP National Convention

Meeting in New York City, Republicans will nominate pro-life President George W. Bush and pro-life Vice President Dick Cheney.



Your dedication means more now than it ever has before

For the Pro-Life Movement,
Now Is the Time for Heroes

Pro-life team of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are in a close contest against the pro-abortion team of Senators John Kerry and John Edwards.

You might remember the story that National Right to Life News ran about Rai Rojas just after the 2000 election. The story was about the work of one man in those elections - - but it was really about the indomitable spirit of millions of pro-life Americans who want to see the killing stopped.

Raimundo (Rai, pronounced Ray) Rojas is a long-time grassroots worker for the pro-life movement. In 1991, he was hired by National Right to Life, and since then, has worked in various capacities: for NRL PAC, as Hispanic Outreach Coordinator, and as an at-large member of the NRLC Board of Directors.

Sometimes a person is in the right place at the right time in history. Certainly Rai was.

SUPPORT FOR ABORTION REAFFIRMED AND EXPANDED AT DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

By Carol Tobias, NRL Political Director

Gloria Feldt, President of PPFA and its political arm, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, shown here praising Sen. John Kerry at a special rally put together by the Kerry campaign two days before the April 25 "March for Women's Lives." Feldt also lavishly praised Kerry at the Democratic National Convention.

The Democratic National Convention held in Boston July 26-29 proved once again that those with a pro-life view are not welcome in the party. From the pro-abortion platform that was adopted, to Ron Reagan, Jr.'s speech hailing "embryonic stem cell research" (he was actually advocating human cloning), to Planned Parenthood President Gloria Feldt delivering a speech from the dais, the pro-abortion voice of the party came through loud and clear.

The Democratic National Convention culminated with staunchly pro-abortion Senators John Kerry and John Edwards accepting the presidential and vice presidential nominations of the Democratic Party.

In unmistakable terms, Kerry and Edwards present a clear contrast to the pro-life ticket of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

KERRY'S MENDACIOUS MAKEOVER

On the second day of the Democratic Party's national convention, many newspapers showed a picture of John Kerry, in a powder-blue NASA "bunny suit," crawling out of a space shuttle. The outfit, covering everything but a portion of his face, is a perfect metaphor for the way he presented himself two days later as the party's presidential nominee: a smiling face of "middle-class values" for the voters--and all his radical values under cover. Let's look at two segments of his acceptance speech.

* We have it in our power to change the world again. But only if we're true to our ideals--and that starts by telling the truth to the American people. That is my first pledge to you tonight. As President, I will restore trust and credibility to the White House. I ask you to judge me by my record [emphases added].

In the rest of his speech, Mr. Kerry promptly concealed the truth about the record by which he asks to be judged. Not only did Mr. Kerry pass over the highly controversial stands he took before he became a senator, he also covered up his subsequent 19-year record in the U.S. Senate and the numerous public statements he has made on social policy issues.

The primary issue that dared not speak its name was, of course, abortion. It is the issue that separates the Democratic Party on a national level from the rest of the country. A "bunny suit" covered the real position of Mr. Kerry and his party.
